The Adriatic Sea
The Adriatic Sea along the Croatian coast stands out with its distinct transparency and intense colour, which with the picturesque coast contributes to the unique landscape. Thanks to its high quality and the absence of industrial effects on the environment, the Adriatic Sea is one of the cleanest seas in the world so the highest quality sea salt can be obtained from it. The Adriatic Sea with its autochthonous plant and animal abundance represents a harmonious ecosystem and intact natural treasure of Croatia. It is rich in mineral salts, plankton and algae. Water in the Adriatic changes every 5-10 years, while in the Mediterranean it takes 70-100 years for the water to change. Scientific studies have shown that the Adriatic Sea contains over 80 essential minerals and trace elements essential for human health. The UN has declared the Adriatic a special attention ecosystem.
An important property of sea water is salinity, which shows the total amount of all dissolved salts in 1000 g of sea water. The salinity of the Adriatic Sea is high – 38.30 per mille on average, i.e. 38.30 grams of salt are dissolved in one kilogram of water.
